What is Arcalion?
Arcalion containing the active ingredient sulbutiamine is a synthetic derivative of thiamine (vitamin B). It remedies the symptoms of weakness by increasing focus, strength (both physical and mental), and energy. It can help the patient become more alert, less lethargic, and more upbeat whilst also helping to stabilize sleeping patterns. The medication is prescribed as a treatment to help patients with a wide range of conditions such as asthenia, chronic fatigue, diabetes, hypothyroidism, renal disease, fibromyalgia, and depression.
How is Arcalion used?
Arcalion is usually taken 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the therapy. The maximum recommended amount is 600mg within a 24 hour period. The tablets should always be taken whole and not chewed, broken or crushed to prevent too much of the medication from being released at one time.
Patients using Arcalion may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Renal failure
- Lupus symptoms
- Heightened levels of uric acid
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
Arcalion is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.
